Octoprint suggestion

Just a thought...

I see in the Manage Printers , Connect Octoprint, there is a Note that advises to change gcode flavor.

After assisting someone is getting theirs to work, could a small edit be made to this note? Perhaps stating it a bit more precisely.... "Note: Printing Ulticode using Octoprint does not work. Please switch you gcode flavor under "Machine Settings" and set to Marlin" ?

(You say FLAVOUR in the note and FLAVOR in the Machine Settings)

Also, could some intelligence be added to the "Print with Octoprint" button to check the gcode has been changed?

    I have updated the text for now, similar to your suggestion.

    could some intelligence be added to the "Print with Octoprint" button to check the gcode has been changed?

    I have been mulling over that in the past, but never came up with an optimal solution. What I would like to do is to write an OctoPrint plugin to "un-UltiGcode" the gcode on the fly when printing. This would make OctoPrint UltiGcode compatible, so refusing to print UltiGcode would not be a good solution (anymore).

    What I am currently thinking is, instead of showing the message "Note: printing Ultigcode using..." is having a checkbox that is set by default to actually switch the gcode flavor for you.

    Yes, any automation that makes it a bit easier would be great.

    I know I have forgotten to make the change (multiple laptops...I forget)...and then see the printer immediately starting to print when the nozzle isn't even heated up....first clue it isn't set to Marlin! :)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
